Very few singers can sing well, if they can't hear themselves . I don't think she was used to being on stage with a loud band . The guys. while none of them really natural born singers , were used to it . She gets better toward the end, I don't know if it that is because she is getting used to the live thing or the monitors situation changed . It is possible that Healy was messing around, but I don't think so . Sometimes I am more concerned with "where the hell is Keith" , sometimes it makes me wonder , didn't they notice no piano in the mix ?
All this makes you realize what an incredibly good stage band the early Beatles were . Listen to , say, the Hollywood Bowl concert from 64, deafening screaming girls, no monitors, and they still sing on key .
